Sam was born in Starkville, Mississippi, where he lived for five years before relocating to Cleveland, Mississippi.
Sam’s first entrepreneurial experience was around age 15, when he started his own landscaping business. He charged neighbors $25 for the front yard and $25 for the back. During his youthful years, Sam was always involved in sports, at one point he was competing in five sports at one time.
After graduating high school and not receiving a scholarship to play football, Sam landed a full-ride academic scholarship to attend Mississippi State University in the fall of 2017. Sam studied Chemical Engineering his first two semesters before quickly realizing he was in the wrong field of study. He changed his major to Finance and eventually landed in Business Management.
During those transitional semesters, Sam spent hours learning about social platforms, communication, and how to grow your business in a digital world. This led Sam to start his e-commerce brand, small marketing agency, podcast, and vlog series.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, everything came to a sudden halt. While Sam was building his real estate marketing agency, he decided to take summer classes to graduate early.
After graduating in November of 2020, Sam moved to Nashville, Tennessee with one suitcase and a mattress stuffed into the back of his car. He decided to start his real estate career at the height of the real estate market just months after arriving in Nashville.
You may see him around town with a camera – filming everything. Sam produces vlogs, podcasts, web shows, and more. Check him out @samcolemandancer on Instagram or tweet him @colemandancer to say Hi.
